A Splendid Change

Standard

I set out gangbusters on the Splendid Sampler until I got to Block 7! That one involves embroidery. Don’t hate, don’t love it! I am choosing to cut the blocks and trace the designs for all the embroidery blocks, and then work on them all at once. Besides that gives me more time to find my embroidery floss!

So, I had created this block #4:

Nothing striking about it and the stems that are embroidered are LOST! Doesn’t do much for the group, and was pretty blah!

I looked at others blocks and knew I could do better. And so I had a do over… I used a bright white background and cheerier fabrics. Much better!

Works well with the group.

From there I moved on to block 8. It was pretty straightforward, and am pleased with the selections made.

Over the holidays, I will have some time to sew a little more. I am hoping to knock out a couple more blocks, get back to my longarm and curl up with these borrowed books:

Enjoy the day!
